, steve perlesteen for "the washington post" and jim tankersly, economics correspondent for "the national journal." gentlemen, this is still a pretty ugly economy out there. during the whole debt ceiling issue, debate, we saw jobs, you know, job numbers basically be stagnant, unemployment rate go up. >> and big -- >> and the gdp number, the output number and then the manufacturing index, a pretty good index, actually, basically flat lining, meaning not growing, not shrinking. >> right on the line of recession, versus no recession. >> what is going on? a couple of things you need to remember. number one, government doesn't control the economy. we get into these debates and think the dials in washington, just get them right, the economy will -- doesn't work that way. and government has an effect at the margin, but at this point, the major thing going on is the thing that has been going on for the last three years. we had an economy that was much too big. people in the wrong places with the wrong skills, too many office buildings, too many stores, too many companies, and things misp

of satan fries. >> it's a bad deal. it's a bad deal, but it's a done deal, as my colleague, steve israel says. it's a bad deal but it's a done deal and it's time for us to move on. it's the basis on which we are going to proceed and we have to get on with it. we've got to go to thetable, do the best we can in a balanced, bipartisan way to kprcreate job reduce the deficit and take us into the future. just talking about how we got here and our points about this bill, don't get me started. >> let me get you started a little bit. was the president a bad negotiator? did he give away too much? >> i don't think so. >> why not? >> i think the president was great. but again, what is the point of talking about what is finished. on every -- anything that happens around here, any one of us could have done it better, right? we could have written it better, whatever its. but the fact is the president wanted a balanced bipartisan agreement -- >> but he didn't get a balance. there's no taxes in it. >> that's right. nobody knows that better than i, or perhaps some do, but i fully appreciate that.

steve king from western iowa. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me. >> you are not endorsing yet, you are thinking of doing it. when you watched everybody organizes, just on the pure organization front, who has the edge? >> well, we are so close to seeing the results here, this is higher risk, you know. but i would say this, that all along i have seen that ron paul has been working here for five years with sol bill solid, loyal supporters. this is not a low turnout. nobody dribs it as that. it looks like the parking lot of the iowa state/iowa football game. so it's a good turnout. the energy for the bachmann campaign is there. but tim pawlenty put a lot of organization together over the last couple of years. and i see a lot of the same faces i saw with romney here four years ago wearing tim pawlenty t-shirts. the organization versus energy looks now to be the best bet of the energy to trump the organization. >> well, you have described the top three. everybody seems to say it basketball bachman, pawlenty, paul, some order. when you see rick perry get in today, is he

, steve forbes came in and george w. bush and they had an arms race. spent millions. and over 20,000 people showed up. how many people do you think will show up to the straw poll? >> i think between 10,000 and 20,000 will participate. >> that's 20% of maybe the entire turnout for the caucuses. >> exactly. that would be the second largest turnout in history if it were, say, over 12,000. i think that could happen, even though they're not spending as much money, and you don't have romney and you don't have governor perry on the ballot. so despite that, i think there is a lot of interest. and i think people are really upset about what's going on in this country. the huge debt that we have and the fact that we have over 9% unemployment. iowans don't like debt. they elected me as governor. i defeated an incumbent who put the state deep in debt. and iowans want us to get our fiscal house in order. we have done that at the state level. the federal government needs to do that. we need to focus on jobs. that's why i think you hear republicans focusing on what they have done to reduce taxes and
